households making less than $250,000 a year. in the senate virginia's jim webb and joe lieberman brought the todayal to five democrats calling for a temporary extension of the tax cuts across the board. so steve... how wide is this democratic on taxes? >> you know, paul for the first time i almost, almost feel sorry for nancy pelosi. she's trying to put together this coalition. you know last week's dan greenburg, democratic pollster went to the house democratic caucus and told members look. the popular thing to do is raise the taxes on the rich cut taxes on middle class. what happened at that meeting according to my sources is look at this, look at this. and dan greenburg says he's not polling in my district. the truth is that cutting taxes for everyone is what is popular. i think the reason, paul is that our message we've been saying on the journal is demonstrate fd you raise taxes on the rich that hurts the economy, hurts small businesses and most american workers say wait a minute, a rich person signs my paycheck. kim, the president says this is how politics works. raise taxes on the
beginning to whip up with you there, steve. and 100 miles away from you, sam champion is in virginia beach, following the size of the waves, and the flooding that may follow from them. sam? >> reporter: hey, good evening, diane. and yeah, there have been big changes with earl today, but there will be hurricane-force winds on the outer banks of north carolina tonight. that storm is 130 miles away from atlantic beach, north carolina, and just look at the waves. you said at the top of the show, 15 feet, easy. and we expect they'll be about 20-foot waves there. buoy reports near the eye of the storm have put those waves at 40 feet high. a 3d satellite picture is the best way to show you the changes in earl today. and in the last couple of days. when that storm is well organized and powerful, it has a tight, well-formed eye. now it's difficult to even find the eye as it has weakened, but the hurricane-force winds are still powerful enough to brush that side of the cape, and also, we think cape cod, as well. here's the latest track from the hurricane center, and it's good news for the mid-atlant
contested house races leading up to the mid term elections. >> i think virginia 11 is a sign of what's going on with the country, not just virginia. i think virginia was a sign in 2009 of some of the anger going up in the rest of the country. virginia 11 will move in the direction of whatever ways the couldn't arery is going, and the sign of whether a wave is building for republicans will definitely be seen if republicans win this race in november. >> how are you doing? you've got the wrong shirt on. >> i'm running for congress. never thought i'd do that, but we need people who can balance the budget in congress. >> who are the candidates in the 11th district. >> jer arery connally, -- jerry connally who was elected in 2008 -- gerry connelly, who was elected in 2008 and his opponent 2008. recently, the district has been shifting toward democrats. president obama won it, president bush took it by a slim 50% or 51% of the margin in 2004 and won it by a bigger margin in 2000. however in 2009, the last governor's race, bob mcdonald, who ran as a republican, took 55% in this district. so the ques
understand the frustration of the senators from virginia and their inability to obtain a more complete rationale and plan for the pentagon's proposed actions. the secretaries in tend to reduce duplication, overhead, and excess in the department of defense is commendable, but his action should be supported by an open process, which includes detailed analysis and full consideration of opposing views. we again thank witnesses for their presence here this morning. we look forward to their testimony, and i call upon senator mccain. >> thank you. i thank the distinguished witnesses for being here this morning and their service to the nation. secretary gates announced a series of initiatives in august to improve the inefficiency of the department of defense. as part of this initiative, he also passed dr. carter to improve the department's buying power through a plate it acquires critical goods and services in order to stop runaway costs, growth, and program delays. we look forward to hearing from dr. carter of the initial procesprogress he is making. i'd in both these initiatives are coming a
back. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from virginia rise? without objection. >> madam speaker, what we just heard is nonsense. my friends on the other side of the aisle had had their way, in the worse -- worst economic recession in 80 years which was on their watch, they would have done nothing. mr. connolly: a republican economist said that but for the recover have iry and -- recovery and reinvestment act we would have gone into the great depression. and that's just the way it is. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman rise? without objection. mr. smith: our nation's unemployment continues to whoever near 10% and 15 million americans are looking for a job. that's seven million more than when the current majority took over. we have seen the results of these failed fiscal policies. deficits, debt, and economy which continues to struggle. unemployment has been above 9% for 16 consecutive months. instead of putting forth a bipartisan plan to spur job creation, washington democrats seem to be doing the exact opposite. in just a few
there is from new jersey shore, maryland shore, a lot of areas of virginia kind of similar. not going to get a lot into the station, a day you don't want to be at the beach but not going to cause a lot of destruction. rate dar, oranges and yellow, where the heaviest rain is most part, all offshore, where the strongest winds are, along the coast at 29, that is a 29-mile-an-hour wind gust. virginia beach in the 40s and 50s, now down to 32678 the worst of the weather will pull off of the north carolina and virginia coast the next couple of hours. the weather will slightly get worse from delaware northwards, long island at the jersey shore. later this afternoon, the heavy rain will move to cape cod, still where we have the hurricane warnings in effect. large waves are now arising out on long island and eventually up let me take you quickly through the winds. the wind are in orange, the tropical storm wind could clip new jersey anding on island at 4:00 this afternoon and move eastern through new england. any damage, any widespread power outage, really the only area a chance of doing that would be
't want to purchase. when the same lawsuit was filed in virginia, by the attorney general of virginia, ken keusch cuccinelli, that's been on your show, a federal judge in virginia appointed by a democratic president said when the government tried to dismiss the case, you know what, the attorney general of virginia is right, congress has never done this before, she have a -- they have a very strong argument to say it doesn't have this power, i'm not going to dismiss the indicate -- the case. so the passer in florida, a lawsuit, joined by 19 other states, the federal government doesn't reply with an answer, it replies with an appeal to dismiss the lawsuit so, the judge will only dismiss the lawsuit if there's no legal basis for it whatsoever. there is. martha: will it be let's move on to the next step? >> correct. the next step will then be a legal analysis of the history of the commerce clause and whether the constitution was written to give congress this kind of power. for example, suppose the congress declares that the sun causes skin cancer. that would be a reasonable statement to make.
as clear as you'll ever see it across maryland, delaware, new jersey, pennsylvania, virginia. it was all crystal clear. off to the west. well off to the west. high pressure is bringing sunshine clear night tonight but off to the west we are watching a developing storm system. it really doesn't have much prospect to bring us heavy rain, but we think this will come in at least bring us some showers late tomorrow evening through the overnight and then maybe friday morning. here's some of the timing for it on one of our in-house computer models rain knocking on the door of western maryland tomorrow night. i'm not expecting a heavy deluge of rain it will probably be gone by 8:00, 9:00 friday morning. sunshine settling for a fantastic weekend. in the east that is not looking for a great weekend is bermuda. why? category 4 hurricane igor with 135 miles per hour winds bearing down on the island. right behind it hurricane julia one point a category 4 now category 3, but a couple of major hurricanes churning out in the atlantic. once again the track of this thing has changed just a little bit. i
